Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour and oatmeal. Add butter and sugar; using your hands mix until it comes together and forms a dough. Form dough into a disk and cover with plastic wrap; transfer to refrigerator until chilled, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Line two baking sheets with nonstick baking mats or parchment paper. Roll out dough on a floured work surface to 1/8-inch thick. Using a 1 3/4-inch round cutter, cut out biscuits; transfer to prepared baking sheets, spacing 1 inch apart. Continue rerolling scraps and cutting out biscuits. Transfer baking sheets to refrigerator; let biscuits chill 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Transfer baking sheets to oven and bake until lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

I made these as a healthier snack for my 1yr old with wholemeal flour and added some vanilla too. They are really simple and tasty. But I don't know on what planet this recipe would yield 4 dozen biscuits...I barely made 12 and that was using only teaspoon size balls of dough!

The recipe seemed a little weird, but once you mix the stuff with your hands for a while it makes a dough. They are very basic tasting, but good for a nice light snack. I think I'd add some cinnamon and/or nutmeg to zip them up a bit, but I'd definitely make them again soon.
